Transparency International Kenya (TI-Kenya) is a not-for-profit organization founded in 1999 in Kenya with the aim of developing a transparent and corruption-free society through good governance and social justice initiatives. TI-Kenya is one of the autonomous chapters of the global Transparency International movement that are all bound by a common vision of a corruption-free world. TI-Kenya’s vision is “A corruption-free Kenya”. The mission is to champion the fight against corruption by promoting integrity, transparency and accountability.


The Consortium for Human Rights and Media in Africa (CHARM) project supported by Sida and implemented by Fojo Media Institute and Civicus supported development of the Media-Tech Hub online platform. The Media-Tech Hub platform is an innovative space for positive social change using all forms of media. It brings together social change software developers/innovators and journalists to develop and harness the use of innovative solutions leveraging on use of technology and data to bring about transparency and accountability. Here, Journalists meet and brainstorm with innovators/software developers and jointly develop innovative solutions to address the gaps in achieving effective reporting on accountability issues affecting public service delivery.

Innovative solutions and tools from the Media-Tech Hub will be used for knowledge management, analysis and dissemination to provide ready content for use by Journalists, activists and social change actors. The solutions are geared towards promoting good governance, transparency and accountability in different sectors and at different levels of governance from within communities, nationally and regionally.

TI-Kenya is partnering with Magamba Network on the Expression Lab – a project to create and curate ideas using satire and content creation in order to expand freedom of expression online, to advocate for social justice,  and to increase young people’s access to alternative information ahead of the Kenyan elections.
